Abstract: RESTful Web APIs have made a strong impact on the way services are designed, built and also composed. In this talk we take a close look at the relationship between Web resources and business processes and show how to recursively compose resources with business processes models. We will also discuss how to take advantage of the REST hypermedia constraint to shift to the client the responsibility for the actual process execution.
